Good evening people. Thought I might do another live blog of a game.

It will be FC Porto v Manchester City in the Europa League.

 

With the Champions League all but a distant memory for both clubs, it will be a case of who wants to end this season with some kind of trophy. Manchester United have just beaten Ajax 0-2 in Amsterdam, so maybe City will want to emulate that and maybe meet United in a less-than-ideal, but still worthwhile trophy.
